    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; Learning disabilities; learning disorders; specific learning difficulties; reading disability; reading disorder; WAIS-R; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : The thesis opens with an exposition of different uses of the term dyslexia. In that context its conceptual relevance is discussed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Drivers of evolutionary change in Podospora anserina

    Author : Sandra Lorena Ament-Velásquez; Hanna Johannesson; Bengt Olle Bengtsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Podospora; Meiotic drive; Spore killing; vegetative incompatibility; heterokaryon incompatibility; allorecognition; speciation; Transposable elements; selfish genetic elements; fungi; Biology with specialization in Evolutionary Genetics; Biologi med inriktning mot evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Genomic diversity is shaped by a myriad of forces acting in different directions. Some genes work in concert with the interests of the organism, often shaped by natural selection, while others follow their own interests. The latter genes are considered “selfish”, behaving either neutrally to the host, or causing it harm. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design Aspects of Coordinated Multipoint Transmission : A Study of Channel Predictions, Resource Allocation, User Grouping and Robust Linear Precoding for Coherent Joint Transmission

    Author : Rikke Apelfröjd; Mikael Sternad; Anders Ahlén; Antti Tölli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Network MIMO; Centralized CoMP; Robust beamforming with imperfect CSI; Limited backhaul; Linear predictions of OFDM channels; Kalman filters; Predictor antennas; Long term channel prediction; Local resource allocation and user grouping; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Signal Processing; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot signalbehandling;

    Abstract : Shadowed areas and interference at cell borders pose great challenges for future wireless broadband systems. Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) coherent joint transmission has shown the potential to overcome these challenges by turning harmful interference into useful signal power. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fine particle emissions and slag formation in fixed-bed biomass combustion : aspects of fuel engineering

    Author : Jonathan Fagerström; Christoffer Boman; Dan Boström; Marcus Öhman; Bengt-Johan Skrifvars; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : There is a consensus worldwide that the share of renewable energy sources should be increased to mitigate climate change. The strive to increase the renewable energy fraction can partly be met by an increased utilization of different biomass feedstocks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Endocannabinoids and N-acylethanolamines in translational pain research : from monoacylglycerol lipase to muscle pain

    Author : Nazdar Ghafouri; Christopher J Fowler; Andrew SC Rice; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Monoacylglycerol lipase; endocannabinoid; palmitoylethanolamide; N-acylethanolamines; microdialysis; chronic widespread pain; muscle pain; trapezius;

    Abstract : In the early nineties cannabinoid receptors, the main target for Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of marijuana were identified. Shortly after their endogenous ligands, N-arachidonoylethanolamine (anandamide, AEA) and 2-diacylglycerol (2-AG) were characterized. READ MORE
